Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

Cert Logos Color

The CERT Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.

The next Arlington CERT Basic Training will be held in June. Registration for the class will be made available in early summer. If you would like to join Arlington CERT prior to the June Basic Training, you may seek the same training in another jurisdiction and provide a completion certificate.

Please email oem@arlingtontx.gov if you have any questions.
